Odaiba

On New Year's Eve, my gf and I went over to Odaiba. From Shimbashi station, we took the Yurikamome monorail and got off at Odabia Kaihin Koen and took some pictures with Rainbow Bridge as a backdrop. There's a park there and nearby is a big game center called Sega Joypolis. We should've gotten off at Daiba, because that's where Fuji TV is located (we ended up going there later). Click on the images to see them larger.
Anyway, we took this walkway, which is a bridge (Teleport Bridge) from Odaiba Kaihin Koen to where Venusfort, Megaweb (Toyota showcase), and the Odaiba Ferris Wheel is located. The girl near the right wearing the tannish jacket is my gf. :)
The Odaiba Ferris Wheel and Megaweb.
The support cable systems on Teleport Bridge that connect to the pillars.
Later, we went over to Daiba where the Fuji TV building is located. One of the entrances was bright with holiday illumination.
To the left of the Fuji TV building is this view of Rainbow Bridge, Tokyo Tower, and... the Statue of Liberty. We ate at Kua Aina, a Hawaiian hamburger restaurant at the nearby shopping complex.

Looks like you're walking down the hallway of Starfleet!

What did you eat at the Kua Aina? Did you get to order in Pidgin?

Yeah, the Teleport Bridge looks pretty futuristic.

I ate a 1/3 pounder with avocado, fries, and ginger ale. My gf had the Turkey sandwich with avocado, fries, and a cafe latte.

I ordered in Japanese. They did say "aloha" when we walked in though... which was kind of funny.. we almost stopped in our tracks. It's kinda like how the staff yell out "irrashai!" at Genki Sushi in Hawaii.

Did you like Teleport Bridge or Rainbow Bridge?

It's funny that so far I've seen two Statues of Liberties... the first was in Las Vegas, and the second in Tokyo... I hope to see the one in New York some day.
